As a leader in your organization, you know that communication can be tricky. Critically important conversations happen every day, often with no warning. Misunderstandings arise all the time, especially when stakes and emotions are high, or people have to make important decisions together. Being able to navigate these important conversations is at the heart of influence and leadership.

Misha Glouberman will present a short workshop on difficult conversations. Called a “mix of Peter Mansbridge’s smarts and Conan O’Brien’s wit” by The Globe and Mail, Misha will lead a highly engaging workshop that dives deep into the challenges we face in tough conversations, and practical strategies for better outcomes.

Misha’s workshops are highly practical, fun, and above all, participatory. Come prepared to talk and connect with other participants. Attendees are very strongly encouraged to log in using a computer (not a tablet or phone) with cameras on.
